    According to the poll results (so far) you guys want updates asap.
    So I'll do some changes on how I handle my postings on my customs in here. I'll still upload the gallaries of the finished customs in here and a link to them in the first post of this thread but I will also open separate progress threads for each custom so this thread right here doesn't turn into a mess of updates for different customs because sometimes (like right now) I work on more than one custom at a time.
    But I will add a link to each custom's gallary in here to get to the update thread.

    That all looks awesome. I really love the gritty take on Repugnus and that Impactor is especially great too.

    Thank you very much.
    I really wondered why nobody has done an Impactor custom with this mold yet. It fits the character just perfectly.

    Just a little intermission:

    But this somehow lead me to the idea for one of my next customs. I'll start with it after I've finished BW Impactor and TT Jhiaxus. At least that's the plan so far :D

    First-time poster here! I've been a fan of your work for a while (as I'm sure you know) and just wanted to drop by. Repugnus and (RiD) Impactor look excellent, especially with all the metallic drybrushing(?) on the latter. Really shows what Siege could've been like!

    Hi man,
    nice to see you in here, too and thanks for the praise!
    Yup, that's metallic dry brushing, a black wash and some (accidential :p ) 3D battle damage.
    Yea, I like the concept, too, that they add 2D battle damage now but the results are pretty mixed (looking at the Seekers for example :confused: ).
    So I think "better let me do it myself".

    Do you post your customs in here, too, Latebrus K?

    I'm really the any time you have anything to post kinda guy or just something on your mind. I like to see anything that someone does. Plus,.... it could be as simple as just a picture of something new in progress. It would be showing what the end product will be in your post. So very cool here bro just so very cool.

    Thanks for the pep talk, man!
    I will post again as soon as I have any new progress but unfortunately I'm really busy with work and private stuff at the moment. So I hope I'll be able to spare some time at the coming weekends. All of those projects of mine are just waiting to be done - I just need the time. And there's consequently coming more to my mind...

    TODAY...I had a vision.
    I got enlighten.
    An illumination took place.
    I saw something.
    Something good.
    Something maybe somebody else already noticed but wasn't brave enough to share.
    I coincidentially looked at pictures of a figure.
    I think it was destiny.
    It was meant to happen.
    So YOU, my fellow Transformers fans...and maybe even the rest of the world, too...could witness it soon.
    I looked at THIS:
    [​IMG]
    (To the admins: Sorry, that I didn't post pictures of tfw2005's gallery but there was no picture at the right angle AND the pictures above and below are THE ONES I looked at.)

    And I noticed that it's the wrong way round.
    ABOVE...we are looking at the rear end of the alt mode.
    But BELOW...I'll show you the right way round, my friends.
    [​IMG]
    While looking at this, I had another figure in mind I got recently another copy of.
    It HAD to be destiny.
    So NOW...be with me, my friends...AND imagine it in these COLORS:
    [​IMG]
    Or THOSE:
    [​IMG]
    Whatever you prefer :p

    Does anybody have good suggestions for a Depth Charge head exepct of Depth Charge's original one and HftD Terradive's? It does not neccessarily need to be a Transformers head but fit the character and a Voyager class body.

    After posting this, Stormtrooper helmets immediately came to my mind.
    I am thinking about those two:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    And I'm leaning more towards the first one.
    The only thing that really bothers me are the round, flat, ball-like tops of those helmets but pretty much all Storm- and Clonetrooper helmets are like that.
    And I hope those 6 inch figure helmets fit well with Voyager TLK Megs. Does anyone of you might have a 6 inch Star Wars figure at home and post a comparison image with a Transformers Voyager class figure? That would help me A LOT.

    Yes, it works well with Depth Charge's marine theme as the helmet looks like a (deep) diving helmet and has some pretty similar characteristics like especially that arc of the mouth.
    So now I got Megatron and TIE Bomber Pilot is on the way. The only other thing I need now (except of some colors) is time (and to finish my other customs I already started :p ).
    And I already have an idea what to do with the left over TIE body: just add a TLK Knight Armor Grimlock T-Rex head, Megabolt's robot head and helmet and you get a nice (TransTech) Beast Era Megatron.
